Title: Clinical Potential of Human Amniotic Fluid Stem Cells


Dr. Young is the Silverman Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York University School of Medicine.  He is internationally known as a leader and innovator in Obstetrics and Gynecology.   He introduced prenatal genetic diagnosis and performed the first amniocenteses at the NYU Medical Center, founding the Prenatal Diagnosis program in 1972 and the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in 1975. Other innovations followed, including fetal heart rate monitoring, continuous fetal scalp blood pH measurements in labor, universal umbilical artery and vein blood testing at birth, intravenous infusion of magnesium sulfate for pre-eclampsia instead of an intramuscular injection, the world’s first Obstetrical Intensive Care Unit, and a technique for fetoscopic closure of preterm ruptured membranes.  Dr. Young has published 130 peer –reviewed papers, edited 2 books on Maternal-Fetal Medicine and written 2 books for the general reader.  He is emeritus Director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the NYU  Langone Health Center, and is a member of the Kimmel Stem Cell Center there.  His current research focuses on human amniotic fluid derived stem cells.
